The weather has been really nice lately in U.K, everyone has been catching tans (possibly getting burnt) and going to the beach. Therefore, I thought it would be a great idea to make some healthy smoothie lollies to help you survive the warm weather. The weather really goes up and down in the U.K, one day it is really rainy and the next super sunny, but as we go into summer hopefully the weather will be great!
It is soooo easy to make these, and I have alot of alternatives to make these. Once you know how to make them, I guarantee you will always be making them. They are the perfect thing for hot weather.
*disclaimer- you will need some form of lolly pop molds, or if you are creative and make something that’s great! ( I have the Tovolo ones, and they are brill 🙂
– LETS GET STARTED –
Ingredients that you will need:
(You can add whatever you like to these smoothies, this is just a set of ingredients that I came up with. They are really easy to make, just mess around with it and have fun)
ANY FRUIT YOU WANT- (I used strawberries x3, bananas x1 + 1 teaspoon honey, and raspberries x3. I think blueberries would also be nice!)
Greek yoghurt ( one teaspoon per lolly, therefore I had 3 teaspoons)
3 teaspoons Canderel sugar
Equipment that you will need:
Scales ( or you can just guess )
Blender ( or a bowl that you can mix all ingredients together with )
Method to make the smoothie lolly pops:
Step one: Get together the fruit you want to use and prepare it. If you are using a banana take the skin off and if you are using a fruit with a pip chop it up. Chop all of the fruit up according to how chunky you want the fruit to be.
Step two: Place all of one fruit in the blender (or bowl) and add the milk, you can guess with the milk! Then add the sugar and the greek yoghurt and blend together.
Step three: Pour the mixture into the lolly pop molds. After you have done the first one, follow the same steps and do it to the other lollies that you want to make.
Step four: After you have filled the molds up with the smoothie mix, place them in the fridge (standing up) and leave for chill for around 5-6 hours.
Step five: Once they are COMPLETELY frozen, place in a cup of hot water or under the running tap to loosen it up. When it is ready, pull out the lollies and you are ready to have them 🙂
